Please expand the options entry/display options for dates on profile data entry to include Before XXXX, After XXXX, and Between XXXX-YYYY. The dates of birth, marriage and death for most historical profiles, the farther back in time we go, are very inexact and require us to use documentary evidence like dates wills were written or proven, dates of baptism, dates of mention in court records, and so on, to determine an approximate date range. This is critical to be accepted as most accurate and precise by historians. Without it, we end up with sloppy and often random, unsupported estimates.
